Nice camera. Is looking so small and discred. Can you give us some specs like CMOS, chipset, lens?
The camera can be unmounted from the windshield like on Mini series? Seems that mount part is solid, with bigger contact area compared to Mini series.
Nice name, seems that B1W means BlueSkySea 1 Wi-Fi. :cool:

enjoy,

Depends on if it has a super capacitor or a battery, everyone wants a super capacitor these days but it is not in the specification...
Then video quality is very important, is it real FHD, or only 720 like most cheap dashcams - we need some samples before we can judge the value.

I think the children in the cabin will all get motion sick if they watch where they are going on their phones instead of looking out the windows :D
Can it cope with all three children watching the live video at the same time? That is a lot of wi-fi to transmit!

The barrel designs are popular too, and this one have no additional stuff to it making it very discrete.
It do look like you can slide it off the mount, which are good for some people at least, but it look like power go into the housing and not the mount and this i also like as it eliminate potential connection issued between mount and camera.
And if the USB connector to the camera are a angled one so it can go strait up towards headliner / top of windscreen it will be good, but even if it use a regular strait USB plug should not be too bad as you should be able to get wire up and out of sight.
Looking forward to see review and footage from the camera, and also know if it use one of the newer optimized sensors like IMX 323 maybe

The value prize are hard to tell, but if the camera are strong and dont loose any of its optical properties then it will be priceless for the one having it and getting into a accident.
Cuz the #1 feature of a dashcam are that it is always working on every drive, and it record fairly good video.

Certainly a nice looking camera and very discrete.
I see all the settings are achieved via the WiFi capability.
The rotating head is a nice idea, but if the head is rotated from front to rear, does the image automatically rotate 180° or do you have to change it in the settings?
Also, I think most people, once they have the rotating head in the direction they want, they normally stick with that direction and not adjust it.
It looks like a 3M mount. I cannot see any power lead connection in the photos. Is it battery or capacitor operated? What is/are the processor(s)?

The price really depends on the specifications and durability.

Power goes in the end, just above the mSD card.
I think that is sensible, you don't want power on the rotating bit and you don't want it on the side in case you mount it backwards with the mount on the left.
Might be a little difficult to get to the mSD card with the power cable plugged in?

I think angled cable is a must.

I expect to be Full HD, like this:

Maybe with a higher bitrate, up to 15-17mbps.

Yeah $60 price with IMX323 can be a good alternative.
But also the lens should be considered: some lens with less flare. And this can increase the price.
CPL support will be nice to have too.

enjoy,

That's exactly what I was about to ask. If it's not automatic it'll be completely useless in an emergency or to record something on the spot.

If is something really important like an emergency is more important to have image even reversed compared to have no image.
yeah, not Novatek, not 1080p
The same Mediainfo details like in my previous post. :D
Maybe the chipset is GM8138S which is supporting Full HD? Or maybe because Novatek bought Grain Media they could add 1080p to 8135s chipset?
